A booming border city

Chattanooga is located just over 100 miles from Atlanta along the Tennessee River near the border with Georgia. Many are surprised to learn nearly 200,000 people call Chattanooga home. Nicknamed the “Scenic City”, Chattanooga is surrounded by mountains and rivers in a transitional section of the Appalachian mountains.

An early beneficiary of the railroads, this city has maintained its thriving industry and has also become economically diversified with many service companies calling Chattanooga home. Large companies like BlueCross BlueShield, Coca-Cola, Cigna, AT&T, and T-Mobile have headquarters here.

Automotive Manufacturing

In 2008, Volkswagen announced they would be making a significant investment in Chattanooga through the construction of a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. This announcement came twenty years after the closure of a Vokswagen plant located in Pennsylvania. For years, foreign investment has flowed to the Southeast due to its favorable business climate.

Three years later in 2011, the plant manufactured its 10,000th car, a major milestone. The plant’s future seems bright. In early 2019, Volkswagen announced that they will begin producing electric vehicles at their Chattanooga location starting in 2022.

Midsouth Mechanical, headquartered in LaGrange, GA, has become a reliable expert for auto manufacturers and their suppliers due to its close proximity to a massive Kia Automotive plant. Our steel services, including machine guarding and building steel structures, is a highly sought after service. We also work with these facilities to move heavy machinery. Our highly skilled millwrights work safely and efficiently to minimize downtime for our clients. We are proud to serve Chattanooga’s thriving automotive industry.

American Airlines serves this airport from their Charlotte, Chicago-O’Hare, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Philadelphia, and Washington-National hubs.
